    A total of eight people were killed in two separate suicide car bomb attacks in Fallujah city in the western Iraqi province of Anbar on Monday, a security source told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The city of Fallujah was once a Daesh stronghold and was liberated by Iraqi troops earlier this year. Daesh is a terrorist group that is outlawed in many countries including the United States and Russia.

    "Eight people were killed as a result of the two blasts that took place today. The first one targeted a Fallujah police department and the second took place in an area controlled by the Anbar's emergency regiment near the bridge of Mustafa al-Athari," the source said.
